I made these for Jamie's birthday party. These Guinness chocolate cupcakes with creamcheese icing were delicious. I accidently put too much Guinness but that apparently just contributed to its yumminess. You can find the recipe here on the Food Network site.


Notes on the recipe: The icing directions given on the site has A LOT of sugar. I used about 20% less sugar than the printed directions, and still found the icing way too sweet.  Next time I will use even less sugar.

    Great picture! Those brownies look delicious and are perfect with St. Patties Day coming up. Thanks for the tip on using less sugar which I always do anyway. I plan on making a batch and seeing how they come out.

    Of course, the first recipe I am going to try from your website is the unhealthiest one. My cupcakes rocked. So using this recipe (using. 1.5 cups of sugar instead of 2 cups), I ended up with almost 2 dozen (actually 20 cupcakes) for an Academy Awards party I went to Sunday evening. Once everyone found out they were made from scratch & had Guinness in them, those cupcakes dissapeared. I was also pleasently surprised with the icing and went along perfectly with the rich flavor of the cupcakes. Possible things I might try is substituting the sour cream & vanilla extract with vanilla yogurt and using 1/2 to 3/4 of heavy cream to get a thicker icing.
